The UK Grand Prix Legends Championships

The league is still going strong despite the advent of dozens of new sims. Although many other games cater to online racing they often try to model every era. Grand Prix Legends simply models the best cars of the late sixties and does it exceptionally well. GPL still attracts a loyal following and UKGPL offers the opportunity to race in cars from the 1967 season and in addition offers mods that simulate the 1965, 1966 and 1969 seasons. The GT, F2, Can-Am and the new 1955 mods prove that the community still has some life in it yet!
